Apollo Beach motorcyclist dies in crash

TAMPA — A motorcyclist from Apollo Beach died Thursday after striking the back of a turning car, police said.

Around 3:30 p.m., David Michael Crossman, 28, was driving a 2007 MV Agusta motorcycle with a passenger on board westbound on Adamo Drive.

At the intersection with N 39th St., a 2006 Ford Mustang driven by Jessie Hicks, 58, of Tampa turned off Adamo to go north.

The motorcycle struck a rear quarter panel of the car, throwing both people off the bike.

Crossman died at the scene. His passenger, Francesca Pontecorvo of Apollo Beach, whose age was not reported, sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to Tampa General Hospital, police said. Both were wearing helmets.

Hicks was not injured.

The crash remained under investigation.
